I use the purple “simple green”. I’ve got a 5 gallon bucket that I keep the lid on. I just drop the blade in there (after threading a cable tie with a washer on it through the center hole) and leave it for a couple of days if I don’t need the blade right away. Recently, however, I left a 15-year-old Freude blade in for 3 weeks and all the writing came off the blade. So, don’t leave it over a few days.

The 5-gal bucket is a fairly snug fit for a 10” blade so if you don’t want to spend 10 minutes trying to pick the blade up out of the bottom of the bucket, think ahead and leave something through the hole so you can lift it out easily. A 12” blade will not fit.
